We're going on the cruise Oct 9-12 on the Dream. The race is on Oct 11th. Do you have plans for a cruise too? It looks like the Castaway Cay 5k is for every Disney cruise.

Re: Subsonic Running Club

Holy Ship Shape! Our family is going on a Disney Cruise in October & I had no clue that there is a free Castaway Cay 5k. That didn't exist the only other time I was there 12 years ago. I wasn't going to pack my running gear at all for this trip. I always have intentions to run on vacation, but we're...

Re: Must See/Do at Disney World NOT in Theme parks?

That's actually really bad advice. If you ask a question and get a "no" 9 times out of 10 that doesn't necessarily mean the 10th person is correct. It usually means someone lapsed in training. Plus it being a non-committal, they could tell you yes and you go to the front desk to get the functionali...

Re: Must See/Do at Disney World NOT in Theme parks?

Hence why I said "every", since you would likely be using the transit to another park/DTD, then hop onto another bus back to your hotel to get changed. Ah, I see. I still wonder if it is more of a "if you want to use the fancy pools, pony up the bill to stay here, don't stay at the cheap resort and...

Re: Must See/Do at Disney World NOT in Theme parks?

I thought they used your room key to allow entry, so I would imagine magic bands would be how it's done now since they hold your credentials, are waterproof, etc. Nooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!!!! The new rule is so bogus. It applies to the best resort pools. Must find a way in! :twist...

Re: Must See/Do at Disney World NOT in Theme parks?

My favorite non park place to visit is the Animal Kingdom Lodge during the day and night the animals and restaurants and all the details of the place... so much to explore... then second would be the Fort Wilderness Campground to see a movie for FREE under the stars hosted by Chip and Dale! :mickey...

Re: Must See/Do at Disney World NOT in Theme parks?

Sounds like you had a great time, I love the different resorts & what they have to offer. We always stay at Port Orleans Riverside - they have carriage rides, surrey bikes (and normal bikes), movies outside playing at night, campfires (just a short walk to French Quarter) as well as ferry boats goi...

Re: Must See/Do at Disney World NOT in Theme parks?

Wow ~ sounds like you had a great time without hitting the parks. I remember when I was a kid, the best part about vacation was swimming in the pool too! Knowing that you have a trip planned in just a few months probably made it a bit easier for you too didn't it? Yes, Amy. Knowing I'd be back in O...

Re: Must See/Do at Disney World NOT in Theme parks?

We did it! A 5 day vacation at Disney World without going to a theme park. It was a bit painful & sad, lots of pleading, but daddy said "NO!".... and I finally gave up :wink: :lol: Our kids never asked. :lol: Instead we had busy plans: Character Breakfast at Ohana- That was the best of the trip! My ...

Re: Must See/Do at Disney World NOT in Theme parks?

I always wondered, how do you get to the Fantasia Gardens mini-golf course? Do you take transport to the Swan/Dolphin (whatever way you choose) and then walk from there? Actually, if you go behind the Swan and take the sidewalk past the pool, you just continue on that sidewalk and it will bear left...

Re: Must See/Do at Disney World NOT in Theme parks?

It sounds like you're getting a ton of great ideas, but I know one thing my wife and I love to do is search out Hidden Mickeys. It's a load of fun for us and we're adults, I'd imagine it'd be great fun for the kids! We have fun doing that too. I think I might jot it down & have the kids make a cont...

This is a great thread! To put in your pocket in case of rain: I spent many hours at DisneyQuest on a free pass waiting for my family's arrival this spring and if you have free tickets anyways and are in that area....there is this thing called Buzz Lightyear's AstroBlasters. It is bumper cars, but ...

Re: Must See/Do at Disney World NOT in Theme parks?

Yeah, outside of a few exceptions, there are no sidewalks between the resorts so you are not advised to go strolling. It looks like they may have realized that the course was inaccessible on foot, I just pulled up a map, if you now get off at the boat dock for Swan/Dolphin, walk towards the swan, t...

I asked my husband about this. He went 7 years ago with my brother & sister-in-law. I stayed back at the resort with the baby. He...
